Young said ACE started out as a relatively small company but has now blossomed over the 25 years. He said he expects continued growth and progress of ACE since the staff was trained to meet the needs of the customer, and the customer knows that they would get quality for their money. He also expressed gratitude to the many builders, architects, homeowners and customers who shop at the store.

The move to a more spacious and modern building received rave reviews from the many in attendance at the re-opening. They also expressed pleasure with how the items were creatively displayed on the various racks. Some customers however admitted that a few of the items were pricey, but said that ACE products were known for their durability and they knew that they were getting their money’s worth. The cost of the new facility is estimated at $4 million.

Coreas Hazells Inc was also known as Goddard Enterprises St.Vincent Ltd, Coreas Trading Ltd, Hazells Ltd, WB Hutchinson and Company St.Vincent Ltd and Coreas and Company 1980 Ltd.
